Are These U.K. Slashies The Next NYC Tastemakers?

The folks over at The Coveteur love playing to our voyeuristic side, and each week, the OG closet invaders will let us peek into the designer-laden digs of their — and our! — favorite tastemakers. Just one warning: The lust-worthy displays may cause an undying impulse to hang your jewels on your kitchen sink’s faucet. Now, let the swooning begin!
Yasmin Sewell’s style is far from dull — unless, of course, you consider Rodarte, Céline, Peter Pilotto of the blasé type. And her husband, Kyle Robinson is every bit as dapper in Jil Sander and Margiela, bien sûr. We caught up with the London-based couple (and their adorable son, Knox) just after they arrived in the concrete jungle of NYC at their temporary homestead of 60 Thompson. While we browsed their suitcases (they definitely have their PhD in packing), we quickly got to chatting about the duos latest project, Beach in the East. What do you get when a bunch of Londoners feel FOMO about a lack of that summer sun? Oh, you know, just a Lords of Dogtown-inspired pop-up shop in London’s cool East End that showcases the work Acne, House of Holland, and Thomas Tait. Raise your hand if you want that Reece Hudson floral gun motif clutch? Yeah, that’s what we thought.
Sewell and Robinson have always had an eye for the new and now. Apparently she’s the person responsible for J.W. Anderson’s foray into womenswear — thank god for that; and leave it to them to get us hooked on a fresh sunglasses line, Sheriff and Cherry, and In Fiore skincare. These are clearly the tastemakers of our generation, people.
